What is Fire Retardant Plastic? How Does Fire Retardant Plastic Work?
At its core, fire retardant plastic is much like any other plastic sheeting but with an added twist. It is treated or manufactured with special chemicals that reduce its flammability, ensuring it doesn't easily catch or spread fire.
How does it achieve this remarkable feat? The science is fascinating.
When exposed to high temperatures or direct flames, fire retardant plastics release a gas that inhibits the combustion process. Simultaneously, the surface of the plastic chars, creating a barrier layer that further reduces the material's flammability.
At Vapor Barrier Supply, we pride ourselves on understanding this science deeply. By choosing our products, you're not just buying a piece of material but investing in expertise, innovation, and unmatched safety.
Comparing Regular Plastic vs. Fire Retardant Plastic
Let's face it, not all plastics are created equal. While regular plastic has its uses, when it comes to providing an extra layer of safety, fire retardant plastic steals the spotlight.
In high-risk environments, the difference is clear: regular plastic can quickly become a liability, melting and propagating flames, while fire retardant plastic stands its ground, resisting the spread of fire and providing crucial extra minutes to manage emergencies.
